so, yesterday i had the thrill and the honour of performing once again with the cbc radio orchestra. we premiered a set of 6 neil young songs with arrangements by giorgio magnanensi, as well as an additional song by buffy sainte marie and leonard cohen. it was a crazy few days of lead up, with scant rehearsal time, but as usual the orchestra and their fearless conductor alain trudel delivered beautifully on stage. giorgio’s arrangements are wonderful and overwhelming. it will be broadcast on cbc radio and online, but probably not for about a month. mixing these things take time. as soon as i know the details i will publish them. i can’t wait to hear it myself, actually.
and now back to band rehearsals, and writing songs, and presumably getting around to taxes at some point. life goes on and on, doesn’t it? the glamour is bright and brief.
